Wildlife shooting? Ditch your m43 Panny and buy a Superzoom!

How nice from Panasonic....The FZ1000 looks to be a great cam on paper at least. And in itself a very nice move and a nice cam!

But how about this one. You buy a GH4 like me. You find you really need a good lens that stretches beyond 200 mm equiv for birding. Panasonic says: "No, we are not going to build such a lens (like 100-250 mm f2.8 to f4 or f4)."

No...for that system we focus on small lenses for GM1....

So if this is all correct, I need to buy a superzoom with a smaller sensor (1"is still very good though), fixed lens AND WITH DFD to get into a nice range for wildlife and birding with a (probably) very good lens..

Apparantly people who buy a Superzoom want to have this kind of glass more than those who
have the intention to buy more glass in the first place...

No G7 either...but a superzoom: yes....I feel left in the cold here big time!

But okey: the FZ1000 in itself is a very nice and well thoght out development.
